I have a report which consists of the main text as a pdf, and an associated map as a tiff. I Uploaded these with the pdf as the main document and the tiff as an additional file. It uploaded, but no preview is available. (Here: https://archive.org/details/Sears1956CombRidgeReport). Is there a way to have a pdf that can be previewed and an additional file that is also available? Or can two uploaded items be linked so that a user can see that there is an image belonging to the same document? Thanks

looks like there is an error based on the colorspace used in the pdf images:
FATAL ERROR: Thumbnail making failed with error: tifftopnm: don't know how to handle PHOTOMETRIC_YCBCR

I am not clear what you are doing or where the error occurred. I have no difficulty downloading either the tif or the pdf file from Archive.org

it needs to derive other format to work on the site. the derive is failing with that error. i'd suggest recreating the pdf with different preferences.
